OHNY Auction Highlight: Paula Scher – Manhattan at Night

At this year’s Annual Benefit, OHNY will be hosting its first ever live auction, with various items including one-of-a-kind art pieces and exclusive tours. Items are now up for online bidding.

Take a look at item #104, Paula Scher’s Manhattan at Night.

The winner will receive this 60″ x 30″ hand-pulled silkscreen masterpiece, created by artist Paula Scher in 2008.

For more than three decades Scher has been at the forefront of graphic design. Iconic, smart and unabashedly populist, her images have entered into the American vernacular. Scher has been a principal in the New York office of the distinguished international design consultancy Pentagram since 1991. She has developed identities and packaging for a broad range of clients, including The New York Times Magazine, Perry Ellis, Bloomberg, Target, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, the New 42nd Street, the New York Botanical Garden, and The Daily Show With Jon Stewart. Her graphic identities for Citibank and Tiffany & Co. have become case studies for the contemporary regeneration of classic American brands. In 1996 Scher’s widely imitated identity for the Public Theater won the coveted Beacon Award for integrated corporate design strategy.

In 1998 Scher was named to the Art Directors Club Hall of Fame, and in 2000 she received the prestigious Chrysler Award for Innovation in Design. In 2001 she received the AIGA Medal, in recognition of her distinguished achievements and contributions to the field. Her work is represented in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, New York; the Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.; the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich; the Denver Art Museum; and the Bibliothèque nationale de France and the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris.
